Peace Movement in Action: Peace Voices from Russia & Ukraine

3 March @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join the IPB and our partners in Russia and Ukraine for a discussion on the actions being taken to promote peace and nonviolence in light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. While the war wages, it is as important as ever that we reinforce our belief that war is never the answer and instead support the voices for peace on both sides of the conflict. The speakers will highlight the deadly consequences that come with continued warfare and share the work being done to promote peace among the Russian and Ukrainian peoples.  Together we will explore how the world can support a peaceful resolution to the conflict and avoid escalation through common security and disarmament.

Speakers:

  • Oleg Bodrov, physicist, ecologist, IPB Council member, Chairman of the Public Council of the South Coast of the Gulf of Finland, interregional environmental movement of the Leningrad Region and St. Petersburg, Russia
  • Lena Kruglikova, ecologist, peace activist, NGO Women for Peace, Apatity, Murmansk region, Russia
  • Yurii Sheliazhenko, legal scholar, public intellectual, and self-believer. Executive secretary of Ukrainian Pacifist Movement.
